Most women would be upset if they received a piece of exercise equipment for Christmas. I am not like most women. I have wanted one of these bad boys for a long time. I admit I have ignored my core and arms for too long. It's high time they both catch up with my legs. Living with a Certified Personal Trainer, leaves little room for excuses. This little fella came with a DVD, but with Trevor's help, I intend to build my own personal workout. Tomorrow is Day 1. After taking a picture and measurements, I will give the DVD and a whirl. According to my research, I will improve strength in my arms and define my marshmallow core. Hell yeah. My mantra " this will make you a better cyclist" will be playing in my head. I expect it's going to hurt. I also expect this 12lb. item to take me to another level of fitness, so I will be able to, ' do what I do' even better this year. Enter the kettle bell.... Out the door are squishy arms and jelly belly. I will stay accountable by posting results and pictures. Every two weeks? Too much? Let's do this already.
